15) Swansea City – 28 injuries
The Welsh side enjoyed a fantastic season, and their lack of injuries certainly helped. Club captain Ashley Williams missed just a single game over the course of the season, and even then he was only rested rather than injured.
14) Southampton – 28 injuries
Another team that enjoyed a fantastic season, Ronald Koeman came in and did superbly. They suffered a few serious injuries to key players, but apart from losing Fraser Forster, they didn’t do too badly.
- Arsenal must outmanoeuvre Galatasaray to win race for £2m ‘bargain’ transfer
- Arsenal reportedly set to sign free agent after impressive trial
- Arsenal have ‘concrete interest’ in signing Bayern Munich II star
13) Chelsea – 30 injuries
Chelsea are – unfortunately – clearly doing something right, as they consistently seem to avoid injury. They have very little strength in depth in certain areas of the team, but with their lack of injuries, it is never really noticed.
They were just narrowly beaten by Tottenham in the days lost to injury table, with Chelsea players missing just 550 days.
12) Crystal Palace – 31 injuries
The Eagles were saved by the arrival of Alan Pardew, and enjoyed a fantastic 2015.
11) Hull City – 32 injuries
This list actually doesn’t do Hull justice, as they suffered badly with injuries. It wasn’t necessarily the number that caused problems, but the positions they were in. They were often left without a recognised striker, and were consequently relegated.
